    Bancorp South Makes Kind Donation to Forrest General’s Cancer Center

    Hattiesburg, Miss. (September 30, 2019) Several members of the Bancorp South family have been effected by cancer in recent years, so employees came together to donate 75 kindness bags for patients at Forrest General’s Cancer Center.

     

    “Mary Clare Royals, whose husband, Larry, is in treatment right now, suggested this idea to me. I recently lost daughter-in-law to colon cancer, and she also received her treatment here. So Mary Clare is doing this in honor of Larry, and I’m doing it in memory of Noel. From there, we just enlisted our friends at the bank; several of whom are doing this in honor or memory of a loved one,” said Patricia Phillips, vice president, Bancorp South.

     

    Every bag contained small care items such as tissues, snacks, mints, water, hand sanitizer, pens, etc. along with an encouraging note.

     

    “Cancer can be a difficult illness to fight, and our patients need all of the encouragement they can get. Knowing they have the support of not only family and friends, but also the entire community can make a huge difference in their lives,” said Joe Marcello, oncology service line administrator.
